Seriously? Must see TV for Obamacare. I’d rather be drawn and quartered. Bet it rivals FEMA if something ever breaks – no, scratch that… Obamacare’s web site doesn’t even work after 634 million in American money flushed down it’s hole and another 400 million on the way — it still won’t work; it was never meant to. If there ever is a pandemic, may I recommend we help each other because turning to the government would not only be pointless, but would probably bring death on much more quickly.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is promoting Obamacare through its $1.5 million television studio, which is currently being upgraded for a more “cinematic look.”
The agency has five broadcast studios, known as “HHS-TV,” that are tasked with communicating with the public in times of emergency, such as a pandemic. HHS-TV is also used for public service announcements and press conferences.
However, the studio’s operations in recent months have been almost exclusively devoted to promoting Obamacare.
Imagine that… hot and cold water tortured Obamacare with a constant airing of Sebelius’ Marxist visage. Gag me with a stethoscope.
HHS-TV released a video of Secretary Kathleen Sebelius hyping the opening of the health insurance exchanges as “exciting news” on the first day of enrollment on Oct. 1.
“If you’re uninsured, if you thought that good health insurance would never be within your reach, help is on the way,” she said. The studio also provided b-roll for media outlets of the Obamacare Marketplace on its first day.
Another HHS-TV video on Aug. 26 said Obamacare is “great news” for young people. Sebelius attempted to convince young Americans that they should purchase health care.
Maybe if they hype it often enough, the young will fall for it. I doubt it. But it won’t be for lack of trying. NBC and the other networks are working Obamacare into all their programming for the sheeple.
In a video on July 10, Sebelius praised the Obamacare enrollment website as “easy to use.”
“To help people get ready, we launched HealthCare.gov, which was put together with you and your family in mind,” she said. “It’s easy to use, it has a live web chat tool and a 24/7 customer call center to help you out.”
“And it’s available in English and Spanish,” Sebelius said.
ROTFL. Bwaaahaaahaaa!!! So easy to use, you can’t use it. And forget multiple languages. The only language the Obamacare site fluently speaks is FUBAR. Oh, the irony… the comedy… the abomination that is Obamacare.
Taxpayers spent $1.5 million in fiscal year 2012 to operate the HHS broadcast studio, which is used “as a lead component in their communication strategies.”
The studio recently upgraded to high definition (HD) and purchased over $37,000 in television production equipment, including the Canon EOS C300 system, which is designed for “cinema industry professionals.”
“The success or failure of government initiatives rests on the timely and accurate communication of information,” HHS said in its justification for the order.
“The Canon C300 system with Zeiss prime lenses offer a cinematic look called for in certain production situations,” the agency said of the purchase. “Additionally, the Zeiss prime lenses can be adapted to work with our HD studio cameras for a shallow depth of field look when required.”
HHS said the television studio is important in the event of a pandemic flu and will “play a vital role in keeping the public informed.”
Wow… I feel so much safer and more protected now. Not. So, exactly how would this help in the event of a pandemic flue outbreak? Are they going to notify everyone: “You are screwed, prepare to meet your maker?” Because after a pandemic outbreak, the genie is already out of the bottle pretty much. Maybe they will recruit for body disposal detail thru their new channel, providing it is still on the air – see The Stand.
So, we’ve wasted another 1.5 million on this and trust me that is only the beginning. More propaganda channels to come I’m sure as well. America is paying for her own brainwashing. Yep, this worked out so well for Nazi Germany and every other fascist/communist regime on the planet. It always ends in death, death, death. Russia and China must find this hilarious.
